My husband and I are huge Star Wars fans (truth be told, I’m the total geek, and he humors me). So for this father’s day, I thought I would make him a special card using the Kindred Stamps “Galactic Adventures” and “Galactic Adventures the Sequel” stamp sets.
I decided that I could be Princess Leia, Mr. CraftyPaws could be Han Solo, and our Bandito could be (of course) an Ewok and used the following Copic colors:
Princess Leia: Hair: C6, C8, B000; Skin: E50, E51, E53, R21; Dress: C0, C1, C2, B32; Belt; C2 and B60
Han Solo: Hair: E53, E57, E59; Skin: E50, E51, E53, R30; Pants: B34 and B37; Belt: E59 and E79; Vest and Boots: E79 and E49; Shirt: Y21 and YR24
Ewok: Fur: W0, W1, E11, E13, E15; Headpiece: BG72, BG75 and BG78
I also used a Gold Gelly Roll Pen to add shiny details to Leia’s belt, the Ewok’s headpiece, and Han’s belt
As these images are clearly the “stars” of the card (pun intended), I kept the backgrounds simple. I die cut some black and grey patterned paper from an old DCWV The Tie-Dyed Stack (retired) using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares Die. I splattered some watered down Copic Opaque White to create a galaxy background, and used black card stock and the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares Die and a Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Die to create a ground for the characters.
To add some more color, I die cut another stitched square from navy blue shimmer card stock and offset it behind the galaxy background square. Using VersaMark Ink and Ranger Super Fine Detail White Embossing Powder, I also heat embossed the sentiment, “Together We Can Rule the Galaxy” on more navy blue shimmer card stock to repeat the color and give the card a cohesive look. The sentiment, characters, and the squares assemblage are all popped up on double sided foam tape for added dimension and interest. The inside of the card liner was created by using more of the black and grey tie-dyed patterned paper with splattered on “stars.” The sentiment inside is also heat embossed, and simply says, “Happy Father’s Day”.
